Adults-Only Version Of Manhunt 2 Coming Next Week Via Digital Download

Rockstar Games’ visceral stealth-murder series Manhunt has been a lightning rod for discussions about video game violence for some time, even though Manhunt 2 pulled a number of punches that the original didn’t, and ended up being a mere shell of what the original was. Well, for those gamers out there who felt shortchanged by the subdued ultra-violence of the sequel, rejoice. As Big Download reports, an Adults-Only version of the game will be released for PC on Nov. 6 on Direct2Drive for $29.95. (Oh, and it also supports 3D monitors, just in case nauseating 2D kills aren't intense enough for you.)

This release actually marks a rather interesting point in the digital distribution space, since it lets Rockstar avoid the issues that releasing an AO-rated game at retail brings; namely, the fact that most retailers won’t sell AO-rated games. It also means that kids could easily download the game I contacted Rockstar to find out more about what this move might mean for future Manhunt titles, so I’ll let you know what I hear.
